To give you an idea how long I have been working on my youngest son's room, the above photo was taken last year. I purchased the letters at Junk Bonanza.
Looking at the picture I see this was sometime before Brawn made a new table top. And even before that, August of 2011, is when his whole room was started. Before I even considered starting a blog.
The olden days.
And sometime between last year and yesterday, I lost an O.
My Roll is now only R ll.
That just doesn't have the same ring to it. Rock and R ll.
Fortunately Junk Bonanza is this month. Maybe I can get another O.
I told you a couple posts ago about the secret of the original Rock & Roll dresser. The stinky secret about the smell of that free yellow dresser, and how the scent never went away.
The smell didn't go away, but last spring the dresser did. It now lives in the smelly garage.
The bed spring bulletin board now needs to be repainted, it doesn't match his new dresser quite right.
It never got hung up, and today I couldn't find it to give it that new coat of paint.
And what is this thing waiting for stain?
When a set of three lockers isn't the height you want, you kindly ask the man with the tools to build you something to raise it up.
For all of you bloggers who have used pipe in your home designs....the nightstand below is 15 years old. Ummm hmmm, 15 years old. I called it being resourceful back then. It matches the pipe curtain valance and the pipe shelving we made all those years ago in our boys room.
Back then it was occupied by two boys, neither of which is the current occupant.
So old in fact the wood is getting a new darker look, along with the shelves.
And how about a huge, heavy, real slate chalkboard right out of a school. I picked it up this summer for $5.00...... and as I type, the tray is currently drying in the garage after a new coat of silver spray to clean it up.
But Little Rocker was sad.
He had no dresser.
No bulletin board hung.
His Roll was missing it's O.
So I am getting the goods together, no more procrastinating, and pulling all the elements for his room together.
I warned the lazy dog that the next batch of photos he will not be obscuring the new good smelling dresser.
Rock & Roll Dresser Take 2. The slightly larger, different configuration, almost identical copy of one of my own projects.
This weekend my goal is to find my O, because, well...... that's the only way I can really roll!
